Ray LaMontagne to Co-headline with The Levon Helm Band

Ray! WHY do you gotta do me wrong! I just want to see YOU live! While seeing David Gray live was great, what's with the co-headlining gigs? Fresh off a nationwide tour with David Gray, Ray LaMontagne & The Pariah Dogs are about to embark on ANOTHER co-headlining tour, this time with the Levon Helm Band.  The tour kicks off November 2nd in Jacksonville, FL and wraps up on November 12th in Austin, TX.  Despite skipping over the Boston area this time, I couldn't resist a post about my favorite smokey-voiced crooner from the Northeast.

LaMontagne's 4th studio album, God Willin' & The Creek Don't Rise debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and went to the top of the Digital album charts.  Last month, first single, "Beg Steal or Borrow" went #1 on the AAA BDS and Mediabase charts making for his first radio #1. Well done sir! It's about freakin' time Ray had some success on American radio.

One of Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, LaMontagne's tourmate Levon Helm is a "legendary musician and rock icon," having played with the likes of both Ronnie Hawks, Bob Dylan and of course The Band.  Levon Helm and the Band are the subject of Martin Scorsese's rock documentary, The Last Waltz, which was filmed on Thanksgiving 1976 at the Winterland Ballroom. This was Levon Helm and The Band's last concert performed together. Since then, Helm has released solo albums and won numerous prestigious accolades including a Grammy and a Recording Academy lifetime achievement award as an original member of The Band. This musical pairing sounds like a match made in heaven. Tickets are on sale now. Catch them in a city near you!

Tour Dates:

Nov 2/Times Union Center of Performing Arts/Jacksonville, FL
Nov 4/Pompano Beach Amphitheater/Pompano Beach, FL
Nov 5/Ruth Eckerd Hall/Clearwater, FL
Nov 7/Saenger Theatre/Mobile, AL
Nov 8/BJCC Concert Hall/Birmingham, AL
Nov 10/Orpheum Theatre/Memphis, TN
Nov 11/Verizon Theatre @ Grand Prairie/Grand Prairie, TX
Nov 12/Bass Concert Hall/Austin, TX
